We had the good fortune of connecting with Silencia Cox and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Silencia, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Motherlove is committed to producing only the highest quality organic herbal remedies for pregnancy through to postpartum, breastfeeding, and baby. By staying committed to our organic and quality standards, including no fillers or synthetics, for over 30 years, moms and lactation consultants know that they can always trust our brand.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Motherlove was born in my mother’s kitchen from a desire to create herbal products during her own pregnancies. Our creation story is so beautiful and authentic, it truly sets Motherlove apart. We are also a certified B Corporation, nationally certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise, and carry the USDA Organic certification on many of our products.

The challenges have been figuring out how to scale a home-based business into a larger herbal product manufacturer that distributes nationwide. The need for space, equipment, and talent has always been a delicate dance. Luckily, we are rooted in our values, such as putting people and the planet first, which help guide our business growth in a sustainable, ethical and positive way.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Motherlove is based in Fort Collins where there are so many fun things to do in the area. A perfect weekend would be a day on the Poudre River or Horsetooth Reservoir followed by a bike ride through town to visit some of our local breweries like New Belgium and Odell or some of my favorite places to eat like the Crown Pub or Rio Grand.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would dedicate my personal and professional success to my mother, Kathryn Higgins. She is the founder of Motherlove and creator of the Motherlove product line. I have learned everything from how to identify wild plants to how to run a business. She is a true inspiration.
